. and to underscore that point, which i think does get to what steve said a little earlier, and that is, obviously -- you can have a discussion, and you can have a set of of policies, but we're going to be as good as our national congress setting a floor with legislation. and if california wands to exceed it for whatever or reason, they'll go farther. but the national discussion, and i think the it's one of the priorities in the discussion tomorrow and i think you can get bipartisanship on it. when the background checks were set up because of of what happens at gun shows and everything else, 40% of the guns that are traded or bought are not covered with any background five-day waiting period. that's not a loophole, that's an exemption. and that has to be dealt with so you create a national floor that's comprehensive so what happens in indiana doesn't flood the city of chicago, cook county. and it's essential to underscore that point. >> if i could, it needs to be a national be fix, and it has to be federal preemption because the patchwork of states or cities working by themselves is not effective.
. [laughter] >> and you're doing a great job. >> thank you, boo boo. thank you, steve. teaching my students, under studies at georgetown university, but before i continue with this process, i just wanted to also thank the members of the presidential inaugural committee who provided us with tickets. i hope you got tickets if you didn't see them, and their amazing work and, really, putting together a very exciting weekend here in our nation's capitol. i want to thank them for the day of service that not only took place here in washington, d.c., but across the united states of america. millions of people signed up, volunteered, and made a difference. dr. martin luther king, jr. would have been proud we used his birthday weekend not just to party and celebrate, but to remember what he called us often to do, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is to serve and to answer the call, and, yet, i want to thank the dnc staff and others who worked throughout the christmas and throughout the holidays to ensure we also had a good time as well. so my only thing, i was working yesterday. you want me to shut up?
challenges. >> steve. >> is pretty hurt to know what will stand up to the supreme court and what won't. we just have a ruling from the seventh circuit court of appeals in chicago at the element cannot conceal to carry some constitutional under the supreme court's second amendment. the federal appeals court in new york took exactly the opposite view. if you go back and read the supreme court decisions, they suggest there's a fair amount of latitude for the democratic government to regulate guns, but they also put a definite boundary on how far those can go. an outright ban on handguns like in chicago before, like washington d.c. hackers to fraud. that is a second amendment right goes too far to extend the right of self-defense that the supreme court found to emulate the home is another question entirely. i think ultimately probably what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affect getting greatly constrained by what the supreme court is going to allow. the court on things like regulation of a particular type of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that will prob
into the politics that can get this jammed up literally. not to argue with steve but i will. there's nothing magical about ten. and i will say this. we did a forum -- there's federal legislation today that relates to shotgun clips that are ban no more than three at any one time. we are more -- it's a federal legislation that covers alabama, mississippi, southern illinois. so willing to good to three in the clip. so we're there. but that said -- the clip does change. the assault clip changes the type of gun. it dramatically changes it. two, i do think a comprehensive background check that deals with criminal activity would be essential to closing the loophole. the seller pieces you can. i think he has to direct the attorney general as a measure of each u.s. attorney, what they're doing on gun prosecutions. we have a u.s. attorney position here in the city of chicago that opened up. our gun prosecutions in the city, compared to other utah attorneys, lags other ones. there should be a standard and they should be measured and have to report, and that is within the executive authority because you have gu
in general, something that steve taught us about for many years was eroded. there were some relatively narrow exceptions to the plcaa that allowed the lawsuits to proceed nevertheless. and new york city took advantage of one of those exceptions. one of those exceptions is the basis of the lawsuits that the dealer was knowingly making any illegal sales. so, as mayor bloomberg alluded to this morning in his opening presentation, new york city used crime gun trace data to identify a bunch of dealers that were disproportionately supply and the guns that ultimately got picked up from criminals in new york city today engaged in the undercover investigations of those dealers. 27 of them were caught making illegal sales and new york city brought lawsuits against them. 25 of them ultimately settled and agreed to dramatically change their sales practices. if they agreed to be supervised by the court-appointed special master there would make sure that they had implemented these ways to make it harder for the straw purchases and other kinds of illegal sales to occur. so daniel webster and i and others ha
their steve was using the services of a professional woman you can imagine lincoln of stairs trying to mind is on business. in lincoln basically says, you know, have to have a woman. it's been too long. only abraham lincoln would do this. it appears that he asked for a letter of introduction a professional woman and a double in agriculture. what we have pieced together, lincoln visit the prostitute. he had maybe $3 with him, which was a lot of money. not eliot spitzer money, but a pretty fair amount of money. the prostitute apparently charges lincoln $5 which was an enormous amount of money at the time. lincoln center, ma'am, i have to tell you, on the state, i can't afford it. i only have three. what we know is either because lincoln got embarrassed or his honor get the best of him, but when she said, you can either pay me later or maybe this one is on the house he ran out the door. they say when you visit a prostitute there should always be happy ending. what i thought i would do for my remarks today is tell you a couple of my favorite stories, not just about mistresses and history, but m
in washington and in los angeles, steve in sioux falls south dakota, grant in western virginia, daniel and arkansas and i think that you know gary in pennsylvania. a billion in m. adel new york and rich in greenville wisconsin few in parker colorado. it's a pleasure to have you in the shop not long ago from louisville and dave who got your book signed just before we got on the line here. we have more books from harold to sign and many others that were not speaking about here but we think he wall and appreciate your helping independent book dealers. so many things to go to and in no particular order i am going to go into lbj for a moment, because you speak about his putting together in this period his cabinet. and i think there is a parallel with lbj who said, and you will have to pardon me this is a quote from a president why did he bring certain people who are not of his political persuasion into his cabinet, and you said well i would rather have them in the tent pissing out and outside pissing in. [laughter] >> hubert inside of the tent, but you know, i don't want to stir controversy
. >> steve basic. >> mr. speaker -- [inaudible] my constituency is enb during a hideous regulatory fast thanks to the health and safety executive and the european union. the british economy is very reliant on small and medium businesses far less able to cope with bad regulation particularly when it's badly administer inside the u.k. >> my honorable friend is absolutely right. businesses large and small are complaining about the burden of regulation. not just the burden of regular ration from europe -- regulation from europe, but more generally. and that is why we should be fighting in europe for a more flexible europe and a europe where we see regulations come off. but the view of the party opposite is sit back, do nothing and never listen to the british people or british business either. >> order! >> here on c-span2 we'll leave the british house of commons now as today move on to other legislative business. you've been watching prime minister's question time aired live wednesdays at 7 a.m. eastern while parliament's in session. you can see this week's question time again sunday night a
important source of intellectual exchange. the same way -- there was a very important step. steve collins will remember this. it used to be it years ago, really long time ago, if you were an academic and wrote a paper and had to submit it to a journal, it took two years ago published and two years after you wrote a paper for anyone knew what you were working on. then came the intent and working papers and so on and precision, you know, papers were available almost immediately for professional evaluation, but even that, of course, involved a long delay involved in doing the research and writing the paper and so on. what if you have a shorter perspective, shorter idea that you want to put up there? well, the internet has provided useful ways for people to communicate, to discuss interesting and diaz of monetary policy or anything else. i follow a lot of baseball blocks myself actually. [laughter] so that is just the next natural step to creating a conversation among people. i think that is very constructive. there are at federal reserve board's. the atlanta fed, new york fed, and we have tw
and the lincoln memorial again? steve this won't be a super satisfying answer that we can get back to you with details. we have a team that concentrates on logistics. that was an issue for years ago getting across pennsylvania so in terms of the access issue, my colleagues can follow-up with you afterwards and put you in touch with the right folks. >> just a logistical question. what is your best guess for running time of the ceremony, start to finish and for the parade start to finish? >> i can handle the ceremony portion of the. we expect that the announcements on the platform former will begin around 11:00. it will take about 30 minutes to announce everyone that will be seated on the platform. senator schumer opens the ceremony at 11:30 and we expect the president will take a oath at about and there will be a couple of -- immediately after that to wrap things up and the final musical act. the procession will head back inside and we hope to have everyone inside it 12:30 or so. the music begins for the pre-program at 9:30 in the morning and vip's other vip's will head out from the platfo
original study that were not asking the study and should be replicated now i think. >> thank you, steve. >> yes, ma'am. >> i'm glad at the end we find that americans are reasonable people. >> can you speak into the microphone? thank you to this and i want to ask a question about a group that you have not talked about, and those are the reasonable people who get firearms for the purpose of protection in their homes. is there any evidence that suggested that this makes sense or not? if someone is invading their home, if there is a weapon in their home to retaliate people successfully addressing helm innovation what is the evidence around self-defense in the home generally speaking the data that you're talking about the data controls households type of study design for a more ecological examination of places where there are more guns versus less guns, generally genscher the relationship where there are more guns there's more debt including homicide there is self-defense types of opportunities that are pretty rare. david hemingway has demonstrated to us very well why we should be quite skep
